GamePop, Bluestacks' Android-operated console and packaged controller, will cost $129 and is scheduled for release this winter, the company revealed.
The console, announced in early May, will offer a $6.99 per month subscription service for unlimited access to more than 500 paid and free games. Until the end of June, those who pre-order the service for a year will receive the console and controller for free.
GamePop features content deals with developers such as Glu Mobile, Halfbrick and OutFit7. According to BlueStacks, half of GamePop subscription revenue will be given to developers "apportioned by usage."
Comparatively, the Android-based Ouya console will be available at retail on June 25 for $99.99 and has signed on 10,000 developers worldwide to produce content for the system. Also, the Android GameStick is available for pre-order from the official website for $79, for those who missed out on the console's Kickstarter campaign.
